Information for candidates

All candidates invited for interview will be asked to present evidence of their right to work in the UK regardless of their nationality.


The University has a legal responsibility to ensure that all its employees have the legal right to work in the UK before they start work. Therefore, if you are invited to interview you will be asked to bring original documents to demonstrate your right to work in the UK.  If you hold a ‘digital immigration status’ or a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) your Share Code will be required.  

If you do not have a Biometric Residence Permit or digital immigration status (such as pre-settled or settled status under the EU settlement scheme), we will only be able to accept physical documents approved by the UKVI which are outlined in checklist A and B below:

Checklist A: acceptable documents to establish permission to work in the UK with no restrictions:

Checklist B: acceptable documents to establish permission to work in the UK with limitations.

If you are unsure of your right to work, we recommend using the online tool provided by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) which will help you to establish your eligibility and options relating to visas.  

If you cannot provide evidence of right to work in the UK at interview stage, this must be provided before you can take up employment with us.
